Physicals Q&A

What are physicals?

What should I expect during physicals?

During physicals at Apollo Men’s Health, friendly family medicine specialists greet you and may complete the following steps: 

Vital signs check

Specialists check your pulse, blood pressure, temperature, body weight, body mass index (BMI), and more during a vital signs check.

Medical history review

Your specialist may also assess your personal and family medical history of disease, symptoms you may have, and medications you take during the medical history review portion of your physical exam.

Physical exam

During a physical exam, the Apollo Men’s Health team assesses your overall health by examining your eyes, ears, throat, breathing, heart rate, reflexes, and more. They may also screen your vision and hearing. If you wear contact lenses, glasses, or hearing aids, wear them or bring them with you to your physical.

When should I schedule physicals?
